We are two teachers, one first grade and one high school English teacher from WNY. The 3 day ASCD Conference on Teaching Excellence is an amazing opportunity for us to get professional development that we can take back to our classrooms and school districts. With so much stress put on the Common Core State Standards and the State Standardized Tests, we feel it is ever more important to spend time enhancing our skills and techniques that are most important to teaching. The ASCD Conference on Teaching Excellence is a phenomenal way to do just that.
Due to tight school budgets, the $788 registration fee for each of us will not be covered by our districts. We can cover travel expenses and lodging on our own, but need some help with the registration fees. Any little bit can help us! Know that all of the workshops we attend will be out to direct use in our classrooms to the benefit of all of our students!
